Blog: The Educated Reporter

An interesting question on NCLB ….

Education blogger Alexander Russo is asking “what’s your favorite loophole?”

I can tell you one of mine: does the phrase “persistently dangerous schools” ring a bell with anyone?

Back when the law was enacted states were supposed to make schools safer and were allowed to set their own definitions of what constituted a “dangerous” campus. What a surprise, then, when Washoe County, Nev. (with its 50,000 students) had nine “persistently dangerous” campuses and the entire state of California had … none.
What is your favorite loophole?
